    Its a lovely movie, two actors shows expresses themselves in that short period of time. I think its what one would love to do when given the opportunity.

    The most explicit British film ever made? The film is structured around nine songs, mainly filmed at the Brixton Academy, as we watch the couple's relationship unravel through their sexual exploits. All this footage was unsimulated which was extremely effective. Just as in Foxcatcher we learnt so much about the brothers' relationship as they practice wrestling, so we learn about the couple through sex here. It's extremely intimate and never feels like it's out to shock. Rather it makes for…

    Whatever semblance of a plot was made all the more disjointed by the badly shot concerts. This is an attempt at erotic arthouse, that results in a bad porno.

    For an hour long movie, this is way too drawn out. It shouldn't have been made at all, never mind cutting it down.

    This art film is an overrated turkey. It’s like watching straight porn without the cheesy music. The music here is rock - nine concerts not even covered well.

    A bit pretentious, but what artsy erotic film isn't? Eh, I liked it anyway. I just would have liked to see the characters developed a bit more.

    Michael Winterbottom’s most controversial film is about a British glaciologist (Kieran O’Brien) and an American exchange student (Margo Stilley) who meet at a concert in London and embark on a passionate sexual love affair, which seems to reach its most transcendent peaks after they immerse themselves in live music. Cutting between real, explicit sex and a snapshot of indie rock as it stood in 2004 – Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Von Bondies, Elbow, Primal Scream, The Dandy Warhols, Super…

    I remember in high school, this being reviewed as "indie porn." This review came from a teenager with pink hair. I wish to come off here as anti-semetic. Might watch Tootsie tonight. Thank you.

    Directed by a Year in Film favorite, Michael Winterbottom, 9 Songs is an attempt at presenting a relationship through hardcore sex scenes, London underground rock music concerts and Antartica exploration.

    This is the story of Matt and Lisa. They meet at a concert. They have wild and passionate sex (in full view). They go to more concerts. Matt studies Antarctica. They go to more concerts and they have more sex. That is really all there is to this movie. It…

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Um desperdício de boas idéias". Um filme "sem conteúdo". Estas são algumas frases preferidas sobre 9 canções, filme de Michael Winterbotton (diretor de A Festa Nunca Termina). Em minha modesta opinião o filme realmente peca por não possuir um roteiro primoroso, mas não é todo ruim.
    A história se baseia em um curto período na vida jovem inglês Matt (que durante a história esta à trabalho na Antártida) quando conhece a também jovem Lisa no show do grupo Black Rebel…

    An interesting idea becomes a boring and repetative mixture of sex and music.

    A note on the viewing: Viewed in SD from StudioCanal's DVD, upscaled to High Definition. The image on the disc is very strong.
